Thanks for this story. During the two-year hiatus, Ute and Cougar fans need to
do everything they can to turn the rivalry into a POSITIVE event. I understand
the competition. I do not understand the bitterness. Each university and
fan-base should find ways to honor the other. If we can't do
that, the I personally want the rivalry game to go away forever, and I love
This is a nice change from the drama inciting article about the picture and
Hadley's suspension. Thanks Mr. Harmon.
Howard S, Did you read the article? Looks like you missed the "positive
twist?"By the way everyone can pick up their own wristband
tomorrow @ the Chevron Station on the Southwest Corner of the Stadium.
@Howard SForgetfulness is common in these games.You
forgot BYU was playing with a QB with a broken back. (who still threw a 47 yard
pass on 4th and 12 from his own 8 to set up the Utah pilgrims twice mistaken
trips to Nirvana)You forgot Kyle Van Noy tackled the punter forcing the
muffed punt.You forgot BYU was playing with a freshman QB pitching to a 17
year old RB in only his third game who took it to the house.You forgot
Utah was given 10 points on BYU gift turnovers.You forgot BYU was playing
with a kicker with a back injury so bad he hadn't practiced field goals all
year.You forgot Utah students thought they had reached Nirvana and rushed
their new spiritual leader twice before the game was over, resulting in two
penalties, gifting a final kick by a punter who normally didn't kick field
goals to actually lead them into Nirvana with a doink off the upright or you
would still be crying...oh, wait you still are crying anyway.
"Is this the game BYU will not hike a ball for a Ute touchdown?"Dick you seem to conveniently forget that not only was Utah playing with
a second string QB, a second string RB, and a second string LB... Utah turned
the ball over to BYU with 5 minutes left on the 15 yard line with a muffed
punt... which lead to a BYU score.Utah won despite significant
challenges... BYU had its chances... three of them in fact... and lost.
Thank you for this uplifting story. GKV #95Go Utes!!
